Ohhh! The long and drawn out days of winter!!
We've got this! You've got this!
Haven't we done this so many times before? Made it through the darkness of winter?! Yet, why does it feel so difficult at times?
When nature is sleeping, it is like a death on the earth. Without the glory of nature to lift our Spirits, we must each do it for ourselves, and for each other.
It is actually exactly what is being asked of us each year, at this time. That we recognize how powerful we truly are. Even though all of nature is deeply asleep, we humans are soulfully wide awake. We are learning, reflecting, remembering, thinking, feeling, creating, connecting and loving.
We are truly amazing beings!!
The following inspiration is taken from: Weekly Meditations-Rudolf Steiner's Calendar of the Soul Intentions by Patsy Scala
The world threatens to numb
My soul’s inherent powers.
Therefore, step forth memory,
Shining from depths of spirit,
Strengthen my vision
That only by strength of will
Is able to sustain itself.
Intention: This week, when I feel the tiredness of too much winter, I will remember that, within this winter, I am the one, through my inner spirit, who supplies the warmth and the light that sustain me.
